STAY SAFE: CREATE IN YOUR SPACE
Simply put, for this Neighborhoods Day, ARISE Detroit! wants people to move their events to their homes – their front porches, front lawns, sidewalks or driveways.
Musicians can play their music from the front porch. Artists can display their work on the sidewalk. Kids can play chalk games on sidewalks or have other activities in their driveways or back yards. School supply giveaways can be done on a drive-thru and pick up basis. Use your imagination to show your community pride.
Yes, this Neighborhoods Day will be different; But it will also be one we won’t forget.
